    Serves: 4 

    • 4 cod fillets

    • 1 bunch fresh chives, coarsely chopped

    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:30min 

    1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees C.
    2. Cut 4 large squares of heavy foil. Brush each fillet with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place each fillet in the centre of a foil square. Lay lemon slices down the length of each fillet and sprinkle garlic slices and chives over the top. Fold foil over the fish and turn the edges over 2 or 3 times; flatten to seal the packets.
    3. Bake in the preheated oven until the fish is opaque and flakes easily with a fork, 15 to 20 minutes.

    Great recipe: simple but delicious. (I'm no fan of olive oil to cook with, so I used butter. Worked fine.)  -  29 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This tastes great and it's so easy to make.  -  25 Mar 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was a super easy dinner to make, and no dish to clean made it a hit with me! I cooked this on the grill in the packets so I didn't even heat up the house. They took less time to grill. Plan on 12 to 18 minutes of cooking time, depending on the thickness of your cod. I love cod for its mild, delicate flavor. I was not a huge fan of the garlic in this recipe or I would have given it 5 stars. Otherwise, a great dinner! Thanks!  -  16 Apr 2013  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
